Each book in this series will provide a lively, concise and critical review of current research and theory in a specific area of reproductive psychology. Contributors develop appropriate biological, psychological and sociological aspects of their
subjects and show how the information can be applied in clinical practice. All books adopt an enquiring approach, asking what is the problem, how might it be explained, what is the evidence, how can this inform practice?
The lively and rigorous contributions to this book bring together a variety of current approaches to reproductive issues. Questioning common assumptions the authors draw on both theory and research, to argue that human reproduction is a complex
biological, social and psychological process. Whether or not people actually have babies, their potential for reproduction is an important part of their lives. Ideas about male-ness and female-ness and the expression of sexuality, and the fertility
control are all discussed. This text provides an invaluable resource for professionals working in the health care arena, particularly in gynaecology, midwifery, clinical or health psychology. Students will also find it accessible and relevant to their
diploma and degree level studies. * Presents a wide range of stimulating material * Brings together biological, social and psychological views * Encourages active debate on topical and important issues This series of three books brings together
